Cuisine - - WINE FEATURE -

Vi­brant in colour, with ef­fu­sive flo­ral aro­mat­ics, this wine’s se­duc­tive fruit pres­ence is matched to a fine, deftly man­aged struc­ture. “The fruit de­vel­ops through the palate,” noted John Comer­ford. “It’s beau­ti­fully bal­anced and per­sis­tent in flavour, tex­ture and struc­ture.” For John Saker, the red and dark fruit, and tan­nin fi­nesse, all spoke of place: “It had Mart­in­bor­ough writ­ten all over it.”

BEST OF THE REST: Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2013; Au­rum Madeleine Pinot Noir 2013; Burn Cot­tage Pinot Noir 2013; Pe­ga­sus Bay Pinot Noir 2013.
